Lau return

FOLK super group Lau return to Peeblesshire to kick off a UK tour.

Kris Drever, Martin Green and Aidan O’Rourke, pictured below, combine once more at the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles on Wednesday, having last performed a rousing show in Innerleithen Memorial Hall at the town’s music festival in 2010.

They have twice previously won Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, with their mix of self-penned and traditional songs.

This year has seen the trio take part in the Glastonbury Festival and release EP Ghosts.

A spokesman for Lau said: “The band’s explosive energy and magnificent musicianship has seen them secure a place at the very pinnacle of Celtic music and earn a reputation as one of the best live bands around.”

Tickets are priced at £14 and are available from 01721 725777.
